This patch activates CONFIG_THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK which moves the thread_info into task_struct. Moving thread_info into task_struct has the following advantages: - It protects thread_info from corruption in the case of stack overflows. - Its address is harder to determine if stack addresses are leaked, making a number of attacks more difficult. This has the following consequences: - thread_info is now located at the beginning of task_struct. - The 'cpu' field is now in task_struct, and only exists when CONFIG_SMP is active. - thread_info doesn't have anymore the 'task' field. This patch: - Removes all recopy of thread_info struct when the stack changes. - Changes the CURRENT_THREAD_INFO() macro to point to current. - Selects CONFIG_THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK. - Modifies raw_smp_processor_id() to get ->cpu from current without including linux/sched.h to avoid circular inclusion and without including asm/asm-offsets.h to avoid symbol names duplication between ASM constants and C constants. - Modifies klp_init_thread_info() to take a task_struct pointer argument.
